Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Goofs

When Adam and Eden try to escape from the police for the second time, near the end of the movie, Adam is holding Eden on his shoulders jumping through the big blocks of stone. When a man fires and hits the wire that holds the stone where they're standing, they fall down and Eden grabs the chain with one hand, and Alan with the other one. Then she is forced to let Adam fall down, but doing it, the gravity of her planet should attract her and cause her to fall in the opposite direction of Adam. You can obviously notice that this doesn't happen: Adam falls and Eden is still holding herself to the chain to avoid falling down in the same direction of Adam. See more »

Simply magnificent
12 February 2013 | by (Cambridge, UK) – See all my reviews

Seldom comes a love story which is a scientific fantasy and cinematically this beautiful. If you liked 'Another Earth' then you are bound to love this one as well. Jim Sturgess leaves his mark and gives another strong performance after 'One Day'. Dunst gave a good performance comparable to her role in 'Wimbledon'. Timothy Spall was excellent as always. The point of excitement for me is that imaginary science in fantasies like this one is getting better and better. It is beautiful that author redefines the rules of gravity in both world and follows it up nicely. I know that many science geeks would find a lot of flaws for argument, but in my opinion, it is a very apt movie for the popular cinema.
